    We will, but only after we’ve told everyone we are close to in person or through a phone call – I don’t want anyone in my immediate family to find out on facebook!

    When I get engaged, the first thing I’ll do is call my parents and immediate family. Then I’ll post it on Facebook since that’s the fastest way to spread news. And honestly, I also want to post it on Facebook because I know I will be deliriously happy so I want to be able to tell as many people as I can! 🙂

    We did. I dont see Facebook as a big deal like some others do. We didnt call everyone first either. We didnt think it was that big of a deal to call people. My parents knew and FMIL knew. My close friends also knew. To be fair…FI is in the military and we had already started with the wedding plans before I officially had the ring and updated FB.

    I had to wait like 6 hours post-engagement (like 3am UK time) to post it on facebook because of one of the people I had to tell before I posted anything. (Also, we went out after dinner (where it happened) and so we didn’t get home until 1230 anyway.) Luckily, loads of people were online in the US while I was asleep, and I woke up to a bazillion notifications!

    I changed mine the day after we got engaged. We did take the time to call EVERYONE who close enough to us that we felt should hear it from us instead on over facebook.

    The next day it was no hold bars, I was SO excited and I wanted to scream it to the wolrd that I was marrying the man of my dreams! Also people had already started congratulating us via facebook. Normally I am a fairly private person, but I think anyone and everyone I met for the next month knew that he (finally) proposed!

    We waited till we had officially set a date (booked with all the necessary people). Everyone knew it was going to happen, so I don’t think anyone was shocked, even if we didn’t tell them in person beforehand.

    I don’t use Facebook. I think it causes nothing but trouble.

    I will call all my immediate family and best friends. My close friends who text will get a text. Then I’ll post my status change on Facebook with maybe a cute pic of the two of us with me holding up my hand, haha. I’ve thought about this way too much, lol.

    I have Facebook, but don’t share too much personal information on there. My engagement is personal, and I will be sending emails to everyone that I don’t share the news with personally or over the phone. We will stay “in a relationship” on Facebook since I have a lot of friends who will assume they will be coming to our wedding (but they won’t be invited).

    I’ll post it on Facebook, but only after we tell our immediate families (in person–we live close enough to our hometown to do so), and I have some friends on my short list to call. Once I’ve contacted those people, it will go up on FB.

    We got engaged shortly before going home for Christmas. We announced it to some relatives via our christmas letter, and told others in person at holiday parties. We posted it on facebook a few days after Christmas.

    No way in HELL I’m calling a million people first, I’ll be too excited. It takes 10 seconds to post on Facebook, it would take 10 hours to track down everyone in my family that would be pissed they didn’t get a call first. Oh well!

    I’m tossing around the idea of using a picture of my ring hand flipping the bird as my official announcement, and tagging a few of BFs former female “friends” in it that were oh so helpful when we first started dating.

    Just kidding.

    Maybe. I don’t know.

    I waited a few days…I didn’t want any close friends or family to hear about it on FB,  I have a love/hate with FB, though.  🙂
